Merry-Go-Rovnd tniiiintHHiffliiHitniiitintiiitni By Drew Poanon WASHINGTON - ^ One reason President Johnson okayed the bombing of oil depots just outside Hanoi and Haiphong was an intelligence report which claimed there was little chance it would bring intervention by Red China. This report, from the U.S. intelligence center in Hong Kong, said that the current purge in Peking is far more severe than has been suspected. Thousands of intellectuals have been shipped off to the factories and communes to do hard labor. Both the Peking and Shanghai party organizations have been turned upside down. Marshal Lin Piao, who is emerging as the new strong man, has tightened military discipline. Armed patrols are roaming the streets of Peking and Shanghai. The most ominous clue has come from Bucharest, where Premier Chou En-lai is reported to have told his Rumanian hosts grimly that the purge would wipe out the habits and customs of a thousand years. It still is far from clear what the outcome of the Peking purge will be- whether moderates or extremists will win in the end. But while the struggle is going on, our intelligence estimate is that Red Chinese officials are far more concerned about what's happening in their own country than in Viet Nam. - o - — ONE LAST TRY — Before the President made his decision, he had made another attempt to persuade North Viet Nam to come to the bargaining table. He sent a message that the United States was ready to decelerate the war, as the first step toward a truce, if North Viet Nam would reciprocate. Specifically, he offered to reduce the bombing in return for a withdrawal of some North Vietnamese units for South Viet Nam. The message was delivered to Hanoi by veteran Canadian diplomat Chester Ronning, who reported back that the communist leaders refused to budge. It was after this that Johnson stepped up the bombing. Secretary General Thant of the U.N., incidentally, said that Ho Chi Minn will never make peace as long as we are building air and naval bases in South Viet Nam calculated to last fifty years. The North Vietnamese figure we plan to occupy the South for at least fifty years, so regard any offer of peace talks as a mere trick. - o - - BOBBY KENNEDY'S POWER- The nomination of Samuel Silverman as Democratic candidate for surrogate in New York has important political overtones for the entire nation. The basic issue was not the job itself but the fact that Bobby Kennedy had challenged Tammany Hall and the old-line Democrats in New York. In doing so he went against some of the Tammany leaders who helped make his brother President, including Charlie Buckley of the Bronx. When Franklin Roosevelt was active in New York politics, he didn't dare to pick on Tammany Hall until after he had been elected President of the United States. Bobby Kennedy, on the other hand, has challenged Tammany when he is only a Senator and has been a Senator but a year and a half a resident of New York only two years. Thus the election of Judge Silverman as Kennedy's candidate means the balance of power in the powerful Democratic , party in New York state has gone over to Bobby Kennedy and Alec Rose of the Liberal party. Together they can control the future of New York politics and who will be the Democratic candidates for mayor, governor, Senator, and the delegates to the next Democratic convention to pick the next candidate for President. All this make Bobby Kennedy the most powerful Democrat in the country, next to Lyndon Johnson. - o - —HUBERT HUMPHREY'S DECLINE— Vice President Humphrey suffered two serious blows last week. The first was when he was a frequent letter-writer to Julius Klein, even though Klein was well known as a paid West German agent. On top of this, Humphrey wrote a letter to Sen. Dodd last week admitting that he had given Dodd permission to go to Europe right in the middle of a vitally important civil rights debate when every vote was needed to defeat a Southern filibuster. This seriously tarnished Humphrey's image as a hard fighter for liberal causes. The second bad blow suffered by Humphrey was Bobby Kennedy's victory over Tammany in New York's surrogate primary. Humphrey has been very loyal in supporting the President on every single issue, whether he agrees with him or not. He has been especially loyal on Viet Nam, even though Humphrey is known as favoring peace in Southeast Asia. This also has caused Humphrey to lose his old I literal supporters. And he has done nothing to win conservative support instead. All this indicates that the Vice President has lost whatever chance he may once have had to become the Democratic nominee for President in the future. - o - — DODD'S POVERTY -There is a lot of speculation in Washington as to where Sen. Dodd of Connecticut is getting the money to pay for one of the highest-priced law firms in the country to defend him before the Senate Ethics Committee. A battery of seven lawyers, headed by John F. Sonnett, has been constantly on hand to defend Sen. Dodd. Normally their fees would run around $3,000 a day. Sen. Dodd has said that he was a poor man, that his was the reason he had to pocket money from testimonial dinners for his personal use. So the question is, where is he getting the money to pay all his high-priced lawyers? --AIR POLLUTION PROSECUTION-The federal grand jury being called in Los .Angeles by the Antitrust Division of the Justice Department will have far- reaching repercussions on both the auto industry and air pollution. The case is complicated, ant! the grand jury will serve for at least a year. The Justice Department will charge that 13 years ago the auto industry had agreed to pool research for combating smog, but instead used this as an excuse to freeze out competitors. It will also charge that the Big Four of the motor industry dragged their research over much too long a period of time, while independent companies did produce devices to control exhaust fumes from automobiles. When they, offered such devices to the Big Four, the Justice Department will contend, they were rebuffed, thus keeping anti- smog devices off the market. You will see a lot more antitrust cases in the future based on conspiracy to prevent innovation. - o — MERRY - GO- ROUND -Rep.
